Believe me, I'm not intending to sound snooty or holier-than-thou by telling you that I don't watch TV. I'm actually a little embarrassed about it because it's made me somewhat oblivious to current culture and trends. Of course, being completely lost in my world of antiques much of the time doesn't help matters much either.
Jenny confided that despite watching so many home decorating shows, she still feels like a novice. And she said that the only decorating trick she always remembers is that it's important to add "a pop of color" to a room. "Pop of color, pop of color," she chanted. "That's all they ever talk about!" And we all laughed.
Well, I can't think of a better way to add a pop of color to a room than with a classic work of art. As someone who loves vintage fashion, I find that I'm especially drawn to oil paintings that feature women.
Here's a favorite Picasso that I get to enjoy every day as I type away on my keyboard, because I've placed it on the wall directly above my home computer!
The title of the Klimt work featured on the video above, is Die Musik (or Music I), 1895. I've got this one hanging in my college office. In the midst of a chaos of white paper, it adds color and calm.
Here are some other Klimt favorites. I especially love the first one (below), Garden Path with Chickens, 1916. Do you have a favorite?
Best wishes for a Sunday that brings you bright pops of color throughout the day. Cheers!
